Building a Community Business Brand, CoY 2016 Synopsis 2 - Vail Valley Partnership

Vail Valley Partnership, Category 2 Winner, 2016 Chamber of the Year, Program/Initiative Summary for Synopsis #2 is: "Eagle County, Colorado is not an easy place to live, much less conduct business. Business owners and managers must be very adaptive and entrepreneurial to survive the extreme conditions of this special place. Weather, terrain, altitude and remoteness all present business challenges and higher costs. But the toughest challenge may be trying to balance a 12-month business cycle with the extreme seasonality of the tourism based economy that may bring as much as 70% of a company’s annual income in the first two months of the year. To help mitigate this, the Economic Council of Eagle County, an initiative of Vail Valley Partnership, commissioned a community branding project to develop a strong business brand to attract and retain businesses in this unique area of the country.”
